WE LIKE

  • Excellent option for a ski weekend just a few hours away
  • Perfect for learning as beginner if the snow and weather are good.
  • Costs are a lot cheaper on the slopes and for apres-ski!

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Can get mighty cold on the slopes and with no trees and and winds reaching 100mph conditions can get icy and barren
  • Limited runs for the experts - but great for beginners and intermediates.
  • Crowds on a weekend can slow down your getting up the slopes.

On the slopes

You can ski Cairngorm any time between December and March, depending on the snowfall. 2008/9 was particularly good snow. There is plenty here for both skiers and snowboarders, with over 30km of ski runs and a fully maintained snowboard fun park. From beginner to expert, everyone will find something here to enjoy. There's also cross-country, telemark, ski touring and ski mountaineering available in the area, and a good ski school.

Off the slopes

Whatever type of ski accommodation you are looking for, you'll find it here in the Cairngorm ski resort - or rather in Aviemore. You can choose from bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, hotels, self-catering, log cabins, camping, caravanning or a hostel. There are some great choices for food and drinks on the mountain, including the Cas Bar, which can be found in the Day Lodge at CairnGorm Mountain, and The Ptarmigan Restaurant, which at 1097m is the highest restaurant in the UK.
